I've been using the brass Gano on all the vintage iron. Those plastic ones are a joke.

Tefba (or similar design). These allow the filter to be cleaned without draining the coolant, and without unhooking any hoses. Much easier and very effective.

I've had my plastic Gano filter for 5 years now with no issues. I'm sure that can change, but I check it regularly.
You've been fortunate. I just looked at a plastic once and it cracked.......

Tefba.

Looks are okay but super easy to check and clean

I'm running a plastic Gano and have been for about a year. I like the plastic window to be able to see the coolant when the engine is running. I don't like the plastic window because it's plastic. No problems so far, but you never know.

I like the screen. It works well to catch scale and little pieces of gasket sealer.

I don't like that I'm taking a perfectly good radiator hose with 2 connections, then cutting 1.5" out of it and adding 2 more connections.

I read on this forum that someone (sorry "someone", I forget your handle!) simply put the filter screen in their upper radiator neck. It is invisible, doesn't add connection/failure points, but also doesn't let you see inside.
